If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-- Mark Twain

My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog already believes me to be.
-- Unknown

One reason a dog is such a lovable creature is his tail wags instead of his tongue.
-- Unknown

If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.
-- Woodrow Wilson

What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it is the size of the fight in the dog.
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

No man can be condemned for owning a dog. As long as he has a dog, he has a friend; and the poorer he gets, the better friend he has.
-- Will Rogers

Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of its tail.
-- Henry Wheeler Shaw
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
-- Josh Billings

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool out of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool out of himself too.
-- Samuel Butler

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
-- Ben Williams

If your dog thinks you are the greatest... don't seek a second opinion.
-- Unknown

If you are thinking of getting a dog into your home, as a family member, remember you are you are making a commitment to that dog for its lifetime, probably even more than your own children.

Dogs are incredibly loyal and are simply happy just being around you and give you unconditional joy, love and friendship. 

Your dog is your best friend and confidante, because while you can hide your emotions from another human, you cannot hide them from your dog. 

your girlfriend or boyfriend may dump you, 
your spouse may divorce you, 
your children may abandon you, 
your parents may disown you, 
your relatives may distance themselves from you, 
your colleagues may shun you, 
your neighbours may ostracize you, 
but your dog will always love you, be loyal to you and never leave your side 

(yes, you may try to get rid of your dog, but your dog will always love you and never leave you of its own accord, and your dog will never forget you till his dying day).

So, once the dog joins your family, invest your love and time to build a special bond that only a dog can offer. Build a long-term permanent and unique relationship with your dog. You'll be happy you did.
